Honda NSX celebrates 30th birthday with awesome 90s throwback video
It's somewhat hard to believe, but the legendary NSX is turning 30 this month. The Acura NS-X concept debuted in February 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. With a design inspired by the F-16 jet-fighter, handling fine-tuned with inputs from Ayrton Senna and a 3.0 V6 with VTEC offering Ferrari-rivalling 270bhp, it soon became an icon.
To mark the occasion, Honda/Acura have made some pretty cool content, not least of which is this awesome video. It's blending an old-school 90s ad with a more modern approach showcasing the old and new NSX having a bit of fun together.
Honda also released a nice gallery of the cars compared side-by-side as well as some archive shots from back in the day. While the new car isn't ugly, in my humble opinion it's got nothing on the original.
Honda will be back in Chicago this February
Honda will bring the new NSX along to this year's Chicago Motor Show where it will host a panel discussion about the legendary NSX.
The panel will be led by Acura's Vice President Jon Ikeda, who launched the original nearly three decades ago, and Csaba Csere, former editor-in-chief at 'Car and Driver' magazine and one of the first people to ever drive the original, and new NSX.
